Time to contact our ways with the best bets for UFC 221.
BEN NGUYEN (+100) VS JUSSIER FORMIGA (-120)
Jussier Formiga (20-5) can grapple and contains among the best back games in the business. He is an absolute leech if he gets his pins. But even though Formiga has a better body of work against some world-class men in the division, it’s difficult to bet against rising star Ben Nguyen (16-6).
“Ben 10” has improved certain aspects of his game, such as scrambling and takedown defense, to be able to maintain his struggles standing. Why? He will knock his opponent’s head off because if his struggles stay vertical. He is a title contender who’s just UFC reduction came in what was a slobber-knocker of a fight, into Louis Smolka.
This +100 moneyline for Nguyen at BetOnline is a nice round number.
